Better Living For Seniors Announces Recipients of Member of the Year Award
DUNEDIN - At its recent quarterly consortium, Better Living For Seniors (BLS) announced the recipients of the organization's annual "Member of the Year" award, given in three distinct categories. The selection was based on voting from among BLS's nearly 300 members of business people whose companies provide products and services to seniors in Pasco and Pinellas Counties. Earning the award for "Outstanding Stewardship Member of the Year" was Stacey Geier. Voted as "Member of the Year" for Outstanding Leadership was Chris Bruser, and for "Outstanding Fellowship" was Candy Goodwin, CLTC.
Geier is co-owner and Community Relations Director for Senior Helpers of Clearwater, an in-home companion care services company. She serves with BLS as vice chair of the Information & Assistance Committee. This committee provides support to the local Senior Helpline, including: working to increase awareness of the Helpline as a resource for information about private businesses, non-profit agencies and government funded programs for seniors. Beyond her committee work, Geier also took on a major role this past year in helping BLS with fundraising.
Bruser is a reverse mortgage consultant with MetLife Bank and chair of the Public Relations Committee for BLS, who has demonstrated strong leadership this past year; not only in heading up this committee, but in other aspects of leadership for the organization.
Goodwin, a long-term care insurance agent with Genworth Financial, serves as chair of BLS's Membership Committee. Thanks in part to her efforts, BLS has been able to: retain many of its members; provide consistent, exceptional orientation to new members joining throughout the year; and recruit new members on a regular basis, helping to make BLS one of the largest professional organizations in the Bay area.
